After Five Years, PS3 Players Achieve Nuclear Peace in Metal Gear Solid V

Kept you waiting, huh?

It took a bit longer than expected, but Metal Gear Solid V players reached a major milestone few thought possible.

On July 27th, the PlayStation 3 community of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain achieved complete nuclear disarmament across all servers. Previous attempts to do so had sputtered out over time. However, a small team of hardcore players began making serious efforts around six months ago, slowly ticking away all remaining nukes on FOBs (Forward Operating Bases) left in the half-decade-old game.

Their endeavors led to a cutscene locked behind the server’s nuclear counter. Once the counter hit zero, players were treated to a final cinematic referred to as “Chapter 3: Peace,” along with a personal “thank you” note from Kaz ‘Kazuhira’ Miller himself.

However, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen this cutscene appear. Konami accidentally leaked it themselves on PC back in 2018, when a server glitch caused the game to think all nukes had been eliminated. While the footage itself may be old, players and fans are hoping Konami may reveal some long-guarded content to help better conclude Metal Gear Solid V.

They’ll have to wait for a pending investigation from Konami, which announced they were looking into the matter on Metal Gear‘s official Twitter account. Until then, congratulations to all the Diamond Dogs who came together to make this possible. The Boss would be proud.
